Ruben Dias is reportedly the subject of transfer talks between Manchester United and Benfica, while Juventus are also in discussions to sign the young defender.

Manchester United have made an official approach to sign young Benfica defender Ruben Dias, according to a report.

The Red Devils are believed to have sent chief scout Marcel Bout to watch the 21-year-old centre-back, along with teammate Joao Felix, in action last week.

Portuguese newspaper Record claims that United have now opened negotiations with Benfica over a move for Dias, who has made 54 Primeira Liga appearances for the Eagles since the start of last season.

However, United face competition from Juventus for the nine-cap Portugal international as the Italian giants are already at an advanced stage in the negotiating process.

Dias is rumoured to have a £51m release clause in his contract, which the Premier League side are tempted to trigger to beat Juve to the punch.
